Management Commentary:

I am pleased to announce record growth in the third quarter of 2018, which stemmed directly from increased platform adoption by both automotive dealerships and rideshare drivers, said Joe Furnari, Chief Executive Officer of HyreCar. As automotive dealers are faced with more change and uncertainty than at any point in their existence, the incentive to list vehicles on the HyreCar platform and participate in the exciting Mobility as a Service industry is greater than ever before. This represents a significant opportunity in our goal to gain critical mass in the marketplace.

Participation in the HyreCar platform truly presents a win-win situation for all participants, providing aspiring rideshare drivers with a reliable, low-cost source for insured vehicles, while automotive dealers gain a new pool of prospective buyers and simultaneously diversify their businesses into the Mobility as a Service industry. HyreCar currently generates more than 30,000 new driver leads per month, representing an immense growth opportunity as we continue to scale and bring institutional vehicle supply online.

We are continuing our steady pace of operational execution throughout all areas of our business. We are increasingly well known at all levels of the industry and are now universally recognized as a thought leader within the shared mobility arena. Our recent strategic partnerships, such as those with TIKD, PassTime and Shift, further bolster our value proposition to institutional vehicle supply sources “ from which we fully expect to drive strong sequential growth. In addition, our revenue and gross profit growth has positioned us well to reach our stated goal of becoming cash flow positive by the second quarter of 2019, concluded Furnari.

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Total revenue in the third quarter of 2018 increased 224% to a record $2.7 million, compared to $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2017. Sequentially, this represents an increase of 18% when compared to revenue of $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2018. The revenue increases were primarily due to the growth of the Companys business, which resulted from the expansion of the sales team and increased digital marketing spend and brand awareness.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2018 increased to $1.5 million, compared to $0.1 million in the same year-ago quarter. Gross profit margin in the third quarter of 2018 increased significantly to 54%, compared to 14% in the same year-ago quarter. Margin expansion was driven by increases in driver revenue and referral income.

Total operating expenses, consisting of research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses, were $3.2 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $1.4 million in the same quarter of 2017. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to expanding selling, general and administrative expenses to support revenue growth.

Net loss in the third quarter of 2018 totaled $1.8 million, or $(0.15) per share, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $(0.28) per share, in the same quarter of 2017. The increase in net loss is primarily due to expanding operating expenses to support revenue growth.

Cash at September 30, 2018 totaled $8.7 million, compared to $11.9 million at June 30, 2018.
